Planning and Implementing Career Education for the Special Student, with Emphasis on the Leisure Occupations.
Vinton, Dennis A.; And Others
A program of career education for exceptional students in the leisure occupations is described. It is explained that the book is designed for regular and special class teachers. Chapters one and two present information on career education principles and implementation. Chapters three through five deal with practical teaching concerns. Behavioral objectives are discussed, and educational objectives are listed for each phase of the career education program (awareness, orientation, exploration, and preparation phases). Chapter four reviews two approaches to career education: the learning center approach (with two sample units for career awareness phase), and competency based instruction (with samples from career orientation and exploration phases). Chapter five presents information on general considerations and career education implications of six disability areas: hearing impaired, learning disabled, mentally retarded, orthopedically handicapped and other health impaired, visually impaired, and emotionally disturbed. Chapter six focuses on such nonclassroom components of the model as counseling, work training, job placement and followup. Also cited is the importance of record keeping and occupational information systems. Chapter seven reviews the leisure occupations which are broken down into four subclusters (including tourism and hospitality services and environmental-based services) and 11 job families (such as travel services and resource conservation/preservation services). The final chapter presents a competency based inservice training program for teachers in providing career education services to the handicapped. (CL)
